PSA, guys - Starbucks has launched vegan whipped cream for its pumpkin spice lattes, meaning plant-based Starbucks fans will also be able to indulge in the mouthwatering treat, too.
Launching in UK Starbucks stores on Friday, the silky topping will be made from a smooth, soya-based vegan alternative, with a subtle hint of vanilla, and can be paired with dairy alternative 'milk' too.
It can be used on either the Vegan Pumpkin Spice Latte or the Vegan Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino, which combine the classic Starbucks Espresso Roast with the iconic pumpkin base, featuring notes of nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon.
This week will see the return of Starbucks' infamous pumpkin spice latte, which arrives in stores on Friday, 25th September.
But it'll only be in stores for a limited time - from 25th September to 4th November nationwide.
Described as a "scrumptious combination of Starbucks espresso roast, pumpkin pie flavoured sauce and steamed milk, topped with whipped cream and pumpkin pie spices," we've been counting down the days until the seasonal drink made its return.
And if that wasn't exciting enough, the coffee chain has also announced the introduction of a new rewards programme.
From 23rd September, members will collect three 'stars' for each £1 spent. Once you reach 150 stars, you'll be able to claim a free drink of your choice.
Alex Rayner, general manager at Starbucks UK, said: "Starbucks Rewards has always been and will always be about appreciating our most loyal customers and the new Starbucks Rewards programme responds to the most frequent feedback we've received from members over the years - to earn Stars for what they spend rather than how often they visit.
"The new programme is part of a wider transformation we have underway to integrate the physical instore experience with digital innovation. With Starbucks Rewards being hosted via our App, members can earn Rewards while also customising their beverage exactly to their taste, ordering ahead to skip the queue and paying contactlessly.
"When the programme goes live, current members of Starbucks Rewards will receive a prompt to update both the Starbucks UK App and their password. Existing members will not lose any Stars or previously earned benefits.
"Any free drink coupons already collected will be automatically migrated to the new programme and members' existing Stars will be automatically converted to reflect the changes."
